Wow. I didn't know. It's a first for me, seeing one around here.
It's a shame when people cut everything down and put nothing in its place, or even concrete.

I accept your emigrant Bowerbird(s) duly!

I have them in Kambah through the year though far fewer now than in the summer. There is an all blue bird still here, that I saw this morning when I went out to investigate having heard a Spotted Turtle-Dove (that I saw briefly). My population of bowerbirds has diminished greatly since my neighbour's large impenetrable jungle garden (which for years housed a bower) was transformed into bare "scorched earth" by the new owners in August.

It has been hanging about for a while. I think it's keen on the fruit tree's and shrubs in the area.
Haven't seen any others. Just the Female. The wattle birds don't like it.
